We have stayed at Ashland Resort several times. It is a great facility with lots of cabin options. Staff is great and the facility is clean and very well maintained. As for any Night life you will struggle to find very many places that are walking distance or even riding distance. Most of these small towns close up early therefore very little to do. I have stayed close to Bramwell and even then little to do after about 7pm. You will find a couple campgrounds that have local bars located on the grounds but my option is they probably will not be very family friendly. Better to make your own fun around a large campfire.
